The effects of aging had taken a toll on this 71-year-old woman. She came to Dr. Andrew Smith in Orange County for breast reduction surgery. She was unhappy with the position of her breasts and explained that she wanted them to be more upright and appear more youthful. She did not like the way her nipples pointed downward, and she expressed her desire for more natural nipple placement.
Dr. Smith thought she was an excellent candidate for breast reduction surgery with a simultaneous breast lift. During the reduction phase of the procedure, skin, fat and tissue was removed to reduce the weight of her breasts. Then, a breast lift was performed by tightening the breast skin and elevating the breasts to a higher position. The nipples were repositioned to be in better alignment with the new breast shape.
After about 2 weeks, the patient was able to resume most of her normal activities. As you can see, her scars have faded nicely and will continue to improve during the next several months. She is very happy with the look of her breasts and is thankful to Dr. Smith and his team for restoring her appearance.
